The Surfer's Journal Volume 23 No. 2
Why We Like It
Not much needs to be said about this long fabled surfing periodical. Interesting features coupled with some of the most striking & artisitic surfing imagery around.
The Surfer’s Journal is a unique form of periodical, different from most other magazines. In fact, they don't consider themselves a magazine—more of a cross between a soft-cover book and a magazine.
As a reader-supported surf publication, with just six sponsors in each 132-page issue, they're almost all editorial. They delve into topics that get little attention elsewhere, covering travel adventures, surfboard design, profiles of surfing’s most colorful subjects, and the choicest surf photography in every issue.
While TSJ doesn’t produce “theme” issues, our next edition could be seen as a surf traveler’s wish book. From surprising spins on familiar places—Chile, Bali, Florida—to rarely-visited resources like the Azores and the Bay of Fundy, 23.2 is an exercise in global surf reportage. In the transit lounge, you’ll find the typically vivid assortment of culture, profiles, and wave energy. Strap in.
